My dear Miss de Banke:
It was lovely of you to send such a warm expression of friendship. I would have responded before but I have been laid up with neuritis which makes my hand tremble in writing.
No, I didn't get your Hand over Hand. It may have been sent to the College and then got lost in transmission to my new address.
I am delighted that you received such a glowing tribute from the Times.
Excuse this wavering penmanship.
Yours very cordially,
